Default NS Evo sizing.

I'm 5'7 with normal shoes. And I weight exactly 150LB. P: Would a 148 be good for me? Or a 153. I'm going to do as much as jumps as jibs, but the jumps here aren't quite big, their about the size of a casual normal mountain around an urban city.

151 for both jibbing and jumping. 153 for more stability jumping but not necessary. If you're growing go with the 153

some people will say 148 while some people will say 153. 148 for mostly jibbing (less swing weight) but less control and stability. 153 for stability and slight more weight. I'd go with 153

Okay, but wouldn't less swing weight be better for those spin jumps? Btw, I think I've stopped growing :P, I've been 5'7 for about a year or two now.

it's really up to you. I'm 5'8 145lbs and would rather go 153 than 148. I have a 148 horrorscope that feels a tiny bit small. I have a 151 SL which feels pretty good but I think 153 wouldn't be that bad. I've tried 155 and found it too big for park. If you don't care about crusing around get the 148.

If 151 is what you want then get it. There are plenty of online shops that still have them. If you must support your local shop then tell them to find you a 151 to buy from them or you take your cash else where. There is no reason to compromise the next few years of your riding because of some fake loyalty to supporting brick and mortor stores.

I am 5'10", 145-150 lbs. I have a size 10 boot. I went for the 153 without question. My other board is a 152 sierrascope and when I first got the Evo I thought it was smaller than my sierrascope. The EVO has a TINY bit smaller waist, but for some reason I can really tell.

I would def. go for the 153. 148 just seems tiny if you plan on doing anything other than just park.

lol it's nothing. :P I got a K2 alpine 155, so I guess, if I ever felt like going to do normal mountain hills, I could always just switch the bindings whenever I'm down for park or downhill.
